Lyn B. Designs Our Little Infinity

Hey Y'all!!  Happy Wednesday!  How is your week going?  Mine's going.  This time of the year is so nuts...finishing this school year, planning next year, dance everywhere...I'm ready for a nap!

So I want to get to right to today's post because I'm so excited!!  We just had a swap and the incredible Natalie of Over the Top Coat got my name, and holy cow!!  She spoiled me!!  Here is what she sent me:
!!!!!!  Isn't she amazing??  LOVE HER!!  There was candy too, but it didn't make it to the photo...someone ate it all.  And today I have the first polish I tried, Lyn B. Designs Our Little Infinity (warning, this is picture heavy cause this polish is gorgeous!):
Pictures show two coats with top coat.
First off, the color of the polish is true to life in ALL the above pictures!  Yep!  Our Little Infinity is a duochrome jelly that shifts between a dark indigo to purple with small holographic glitters.  EEKKKK!!!  This is like, my perfect polish!  And the formula is incredible.  I was so surprised to have complete coverage in just two coats.    There was no streaking, no bald spots, just a dream!  And it wore so well.  These pictures were taken a day after putting it on, and there was doing great.
This was my very first Lyn B. Designs, and thanks again to Natalie, not my last!  Thank you again Natalie!!!  Love you!!

Hope y'all have a great day!  Happy Polishing!!

Neon Cheetah Print

Hey Y'all!  Happy Monday!  How are y'all doin' today?  Me?  I'm exhausted!  So sorry I was missing last week, but the teen had rehearsals all week then six shows over the weekend with her ballet company.  That meant many late nights, long days, and a lot of time sitting in the car for Mom.  But she, and all the dancers were wonderful.  So, I guess I'm actually a tired, but proud Mom.

But, it's a new week, and I have a new mani for you, a Neon Cheetah:
I Used:
Color Club:  Sweet Get Away, ultra bright neon pink crème
Barielle:  Sterling Silver, a smoky, silver metallic
LA Colors:  Black crème (the name is missing)
Dotting Tool
Fine Brush
I so loved this mani, and it's really easy to do!  I started by painting three fingers (thumb, ring and pinky) with Barielle Sterling Silver, a pretty, smoky looking silver metallic.  Then I painted the remaining nails with Color Club Sweet Get Away, an ultra bright pink neon crème.  This is from the scented neon line they did.  I think it was supposed to smell like roses, but I just got a slight floral scent from it.

Then, using a dotting tool, I made splotches that would be the base of the cheetah spot.  Then using a fine detail brush, I drew the black outline.  You don't need a brush for this, just use a fine toothpick or anything that is thin.
I hope you liked today's design!  And here's hoping it's the start to a fabulous week!

Happy Polishing!!
